Stamford, CT (PRWEB) October 4, 2006
SafetyXChange.org (http://www.safetyxchange.org), the online community for safety professionals, and Bongarde Media, a leading occupational health and safety information company, announced last week that they will hold an audio conference entitled “What You Must Know About CSA Z1000-06” on Thursday, October 12, 2006 at 12 pm ET.
Featuring SafetyXChange.org Advisory Board Member Wayne Pardy, a leading Canadian safety consultant and associate member of the technical committee that wrote the new standard, this 60-minute audio conference will take a close look at how the new standard will impact safety programs in Canada.
“It’s hard to believe, but Canada’s ranking in workplace safety is among the worst in developed countries,” says Glenn Demby, Editor-in-Chief of SafetyXChange.org. “This new consensus-based OH&S standard, while voluntary, will be instrumental in changing the safety culture of the entire country.”
Demby, who will be moderating the event, says that learning about the new Z1000-06 standard is essential for due diligence. And fortunately for SafetyXChange members, Wayne Pardy is able to give an insider’s perspective. “Wayne was on the technical committee that wrote the new standard. And he’s a familiar face on SafetyXChange. Our members know him and trust him. He’s just the person to explain how Z1000-06 will affect our Canadian members’ existing safety management programs.”
Some topics covered in the audio conference – which is open to both members and non-members of SafetyXChange – include:
- How the new standard is expected to lead to a safer work environment for all Canadian workers;
- How Z1000-06 is compatible with other management standards, including ISO 14001 and ISO 9001;
- What safety directors must do to bring existing OH&S programs into compliance with the new standard;
- Why now is the time to implement a formal OH&S program if you do not already have one.
